EC2 Image Builder components can now be developed locally

Posted on: Aug 3, 2020

Customers of EC2 Image Builder can now develop and troubleshoot components to customize and test Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) on their laptops or development & test servers.  

Customers can download a standalone application to develop new EC2 Image Builder components using a declarative schema or troubleshoot existing components locally on their development/test machines. Components developed or modified locally can be used in EC2 Image Builder pipelines to customize and test Windows and Linux AMIs. 

For more information, refer to the documentation for local development of EC2 Image Builder components.
